DESCRIPTION

r.northerness.easterness calculates northerness, easterness and the interaction between northerness and slope (northerness*slope). The user must specify the input elevation raster map.

NOTES

As aspect is a circular land-surface parameter, in ecology a sine or cosine transformation is often used to obtain a continuous gradient, stressing the north-south or east-west gradient (northness or eastness).

The GRASS GIS default aspect angles (cartesian) are converted to compass angles.

Calculated raster maps are:

The color of these raster maps are set to grey.

EXAMPLE

  # align region to DEM and habitat vector
  g.region -a raster=DEM align=DEM

  # run r.northerness.easterness
  r.northerness.easterness elevation=DEM
